The latest Age of Conan game director's letter has made its appearance on the official site. The letter gives fans a look forward at upcoming balance changes and much more. Read on!
Looking at the balance.
The next major update to the character development system will be in the form of the Alternate Advancement system that comes with the expansion. That said, we are looking at a few areas where we can make some minor adjustments prior to the alternate advancement system. In the course of the 1.06 series we will be making a series of changes based on the balance concerns surrounding the balance between melee users and casters, in particular on two areas - crowd control and stamina usage.
In terms of the crowd control we are going to be making some significant changes to the crowd control abilities. Specifically we are looking at reducing the range on the majority of the casting class's crowd control abilities. The intention is to not have those abilities be something that allows people to keep someone at range, rather they will become escape abilities more than 'pinning' abilities as they will require your target to already be inside melee range.
